Laois County Lodge
Ranked #4 of 6 Portlaoise B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 9, 2013

My Wife and I stayed in the Laois County Lodge for one Saturday night in July as a stopover after the Bruce Springsteen concert in Kilkenny. We were made to feel totally at home by Ann and her staff, the house is spotless and the breakfast was amazing. I love my food and yet I didn't eat again until we got home that evening! Business people like Ann Barrett deserve to be supported in the current . Highly reccomended.

Stayed here before going to the National Irish Horse Farm about 15 minutes away. As soon as we walked it, Anne welcomed us like long lost family. Breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were good with plenty of hot water. There are a couple if pubs within easy walking distance. We were traveling with a two year old, and he was also welcomed with open arms. Would certainly stay here again.

I can not say enough great things about this B&B. The house was clean, spacious, child friendly & very comfortable. I was very impressed with the free wifi & the breakfast was excellent. The best selling point was the customer service from Anne & Maggs. I would definitely recommend this accommodation!

We have just spent two nights at Ann's B&B. What a wonderful hostess. The breakfast was delightful, everything freshly cooked and prepared. Far better than staying in a hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house are quieter

I stayed here in July 2010 (despite what the date actually says!) whilst attending a Hurling match in the town. Laois County Lodge provided an enjoyable stay with excellent facilities. Anne, the host, was very nice.

We stayed three nights at Ann's B&B at a time when Ann the hostess was not particularly busy so without extra charge she upgraded us to her extra large two twin and one double bed suite in the quiet rear of house. The view out the back window was of the quaint neighborhood with adorable kittens romping around. The room was bright, clean, beds were soft and nice and the bathroom was spacious with a shower. We were on the second floor, up a tall flight of stairs but quiet and lovingly decorated.

The cheery dining room was extra large and the decor was warm yellow colors and quite nice with antiques, fine table ware and fresh flowers with an elegant feel. Ann has an eye for decoration and seems to enjoy collecting interesting tea pots. Breakfast were quite nice, complete with fresh tomatoes grown by a friend in Dublin.

In our three week trip in Ireland, Ann was the most personable B&B host we had. She knew we were traveling by public transportation so she offered to drive us to the nearby Dun Amase and even walked up to view it with us. This is a must see if in this part of the Midlands. Then because we needed to go into Athy, she drove us partway and helped us find a taxi for the rest of the trip. It was so lovely to chat with her that I rather wished we would have asked her out to one of our evening dinners in town. This is a B&B with a personal touch.

If coming into this part of the Midlands, I would definitely stay at Laoise County Lodge again. If you are driving it is easy access, just off a main road with parking just in front. If coming by bus, the stop is 1 1/2 blocks away, near the hospital. Also we found a laundress within a block who did our laundry for us.
